When Seeking Dawn arrived last month promising hours of gameplay on a gorgeous looking alien world what it delivered wasn’t quite on target. Multiverse Entertainment then started to detail improvements it had planned and today announced a road map of planned updates which include a PlayStation VR version at the end of the year.
Listing details for August, September and December, the studio has plenty of improvements planned for this month, fixing critical bugs, optimising graphics and networking as well as including a mode for left-handed players.
Once all of that has been smoothed out September looks like it’ll be a big month for the content and features. A free DLC update called Age of Master sounds like it’ll expand the story mode whilst adding a higher difficulty level. There will also be a new playable area and a level redesign, adding further weapon updates and skins. A big part of Seeking Dawn was resource collection which could slow the pace down, that’s also going to be addressed.
Finally, in December PlayStation VR owners will get their hands on Seeking Dawn. Not only that but it’ll be the new and improved version that PC players have been treated to.
In a statement the team said: “After the release of Seeking Dawn, feedback and reviews have been mixed. Players who enjoy this game are thrilled by this breathtaking VR world. But there are also players who really want to love this game, but have had to deal with bugs and other tech issues. The dev team has acknowledged much of this through social media and has responded by showing their passion and dedication to make this game better. Now a more detailed development roadmap sets the next few milestones for 2018, with improved optimization, updated game mechanics and more content to expand the VR world of Seeking Dawn.”
Check out VRFocus’ three star review of Seeking Dawn, which said: “Seeking Dawn is the kind of title you have a love/hate relationship with. On the one hand when it works smoothly it’s a really fun and beautiful VR experience to play, with masses of content and hours and hours of gameplay. Unfortunately it’s not perfect, with plenty of repetition and glitches that need finessing.”
As the studio release further details on the videogames’ improvements, VRFocus will keep you updated.
